Overview

Expert luthiery to rival Epiphone's classic 1930s guitars is evident in the Masterbilt AJ-500ME's precision top, back, and fretboard binding. A light guitar with great volume, projection, and natural warmth enhanced by solid mahogany back and sides.

The eSonic2 preamp

The eSonic2 preamp with built-in tuner features studio quality fidelity, premiere dynamics, and greatly increased harmonic content, resulting in uncompromising acoustic guitar realism. The preamp is equipped with a very accurate chromatic tuner. When the tuner button is activated, the tuner, there will be no output signal from the guitar. The tuner button can also be used as a mute function. By activating the tuner, you can avoid the loud pops when plugging in.

NanoFlex pickup
The term "Nanoflex" refers to its ultra thin (nano-like) profile and its flexibility that allows it to conform to any surface shape. This assures complete guitar-to-pickup-to-saddle contact. Unlike other under-saddle pickups, the Nanoflex design utilizes 7 highly-sensitive and ultra-responsive layers of sensor material to not only sense the vibrations of the strings but the vibrations of the guitar body as well. The Nanoflex is the first pickup to incorporate active amplification directly at the pickup. As a result, the signal does not pass through even a single millimeter of the wire and therefore, the signal quality is uncompromised.

Nanomag Pickup
Ordinary magnetic pickups have been used successfully to amplify electric guitars for years but when used to amplify acoustic guitars, they fail to deliver desirable acoustic response. That's because magnetic pickups have a very narrow bandwidth with an over-emphasis on mid-range frequencies. The Nanomag, referring to its small size and its composition, is a different kind of magnetic pickup that combines 3 Samarium—Cobalt magnets with on-board, active electronics to produce a low-impedance pickup with absolute linear response and an uncharacteristically wide frequency range.

Sound ...sound... sound

By Don gardner

from rehoboth ma

Comments about Epiphone Masterbilt AJ-500ME Advanced Jumbo Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Try hitting harmonics on this box. Listen to the tone. It rings and rings. It is an instrument. The fretboard is wider than most acoustics, making fingering easier if you are fully grown. The guitar is surprisingly light. The AJ shape seems to enhance the midrange notes. I fingerpick and find the balance of sound to be remarkable. The sustain allows for overtones. Compare the sound to Martins or Taylors and you will be surprised at which guitar has the most pure musical qualities.
